What is a DSEN Query
DSEN sponsored research responds to “queries” identified by healthcare decision-makers. A DSEN query is a focused, well defined question, resulting from a gap in evidence on the safety and effectiveness of drugs on the Canadian market.
DSEN focuses on the safety and effectiveness of biologics and pharmaceutical drugs used in the real-world. Over-the-counter drugs, medical devices and natural health products are presently not addressed under DSEN's mandate.
Decision-makers eligible to submit DSEN queries include the federal regulator, public drug plans, and organizations mandated to support Federal, Provincial and Territorial decision-making with respect to drugs.
The table below identifies the parties who are eligible as well as ineligible to submit DSEN Queries.
|Eligible parties||Ineligible parties|
DSEN has two documents available, which provide a description of the management processes of the DSEN Queries and guidance to assist stakeholders in submitting Queries.
